I was looking through old archive disks for parks to play on open RCT2. In the process of which I found a lot of old RCT2 files, including the entire source code for 8 Cars per Trainer. Back around 2007, I thought about posting a lot of my source code online, but didn't have the space for it. Now it is easy to do so with the cloud storage on Google Drive. I went ahead and posted all of the stuff in my archive. You can now browse my master RCT2 folder and explore.
Things you may find include:
- Full source code for the 8cars trainer and many of my other utilties, including the failed SV426 park converter. Also Includes:
- A blank park maker that I tried to use for debugging parks created by SV426
- Source code for Rct2lib.dll, a library used by many of my distributed utilities
- ParkDat source and release versions
- Landmark Maker (large scenery) source and release versions.
- Palette maker executables and sample BMP files, but no source.
- All my RCT2 parks of note, many of which are filled with guests and ready for play in OpenRCT2, including
- An unfinished park with a medieval theme called Medieval Tales, which has a single Camelot themed area and a cool dueling coaster
- Cactus Mesa, a traditional Amusement park set in the southwestern desert
- Rival Land, a park based on college football
- The Great Outdoors and The Continents, two VP runner-up parks with identical layouts in a "Johnland" series
- The popular Back to the Future park with its RCT2-unfriendly paths. This park was originally going to be a team deal with the shortlived RCT Golden.
- recreations of Six Flags over Georgia and Knott's Berry Farm
- some small contest and experimental parks
- Sagalax, a sci-fi, story-driven park heavily 'borrowing' from Star Wars, but with my own spin; also a VP runner-up; instead of paths between themed areas, you have to ride a space ship down a starfield corridor.
- Sunset Bay, one of the first parks that I started on, and one of the last that I finished. Started in 2003, finished in 2007.
- Ride projects including the ones I made for the Sagalax park
- A giant tech folder including spreadsheets on many RCT1&2 formats, scratch pads where you can see my process for finding data areas, and dumps from file comparing utilities I made for the express purpose of examining changes in files and memory based on simple edits in RCT2.
- Personal information that I carelessly left in the folders before uploading (I hope not)
RCTspace is proud to host Doctor J's Technical Information Depot - home of the RCT2 Object Editor, RCT Save Game Modifier, RCT explorer and other RCT utilities. Having been offline for some time, the TID is now back and has updated information.
Doctor J tells us that this updated version of the Technical Information Depot includes some new information about RCT2 saved game (.SV6) files that he wasn't able to add to the old site.
Didn't you want to know the what the first sixteen bytes of the "DAT File Header" were all about?

You can get this great runner-up park HERE.
The following review is by RCT Northwest:
Talk about hitting a theme dead on! I looked at the park twice just to make sure I didn’t miss anything!
I had seen several SS’s of this park during the construction phase and thought that he had some good ideas but little did I know just what he had in store for us. Not being a big fan of hacks because in most cases, I feel they are there just to be there and don’t serve a purpose, but ja227’s hacks were vital to pull off the theme and I loved them all. Having seen the movies a number of times, his creativity and attention to detail was right up there with cBass’s Wisconsin.
The 1985 section featured a great version of the mall parking including a great coaster called “Back to the Future”. This coaster rolls thru not only 1985 but thru 1955 and back again. Some great ideas pulled off with this one and I feel is the signature ride of the park.
Another great portion to the park was the 2015 section which featured some great ideas including the flying cars and a great coaster called “Hoverboard Halfpipe”. The part that of the coaster that really caught my eye was the half-pipe portion of the track. The layout really caught the theme of the area and name of the ride.
All-in-all, Back to the Future is one of those parks that you will look at time and time again and see something new.
